2Sonic the HedgehogSonic the Hedgehog, trademarked Sonic The Hedgehog, is the title character and protagonist of the Sonic the Hedgehog series released by Sega, as well as numerous spin-off comics, five animated shows, and an animated OVA.

Sonic, The Fast Speedy Blue Hedgehog is The Fastest Game Character Ever, And Has Had More Various Incarnations Then Any Other Video Game Character, Sonic's Popularity Has Lead To Fan Creations and Even Game Mods, Sonic Was 1991's Greatest Mascot and Since Has Become SEGA's Crowning Achievement, He's Even Crossed Over With Mario and Other Video Game Legends In Super Smash Bros Brawl.

I grew up with sonic and I say I love him! If they hadn't changed the way he looked for 2014 sonic boom, he'd be number one! But sega decided to change him the way NOBODY wanted

On the run since 1991, baby! Sonic is the fastest superhero in any universe!

3LinkLink refers to several different incarnations of the same protagonist of Nintendo's The Legend of Zelda series.

Link Is One Of The Most Popular Video Game Characters In History And Is Still Famous Today, And Is The Elf Fighter of Hyrule, Link's Variations In Games Have Gone Further From Sprite To CGI, And Also Had His Own Cartoon Series, The Legend of Zelda Is The Most Popular Game Of the 2000s and Link Has Appeared Almost In Every Gaming System Since Atari.

According to Shigeru Miyamoto, Young Link is 9 years old. I think that makes him the youngest Nintendo hero. At 9 years old, he saved Termina and began his journey to save Hyrule.

Why isn't Link higher up? This cute (but SU-U-Uper deadly if provoked) hero has saved Hyrule and is reborn multiple times throughout the Zelda timeline.
